Reality check ;)

Greetings all!

I’m set up – notes by my side – ready to tackle some edits and CHALLENGES! I love that those who are reading this for me come back and say things like; “wouldn’t they have…” “what about…”

But I love even more, “…and when you get amazing characters (who I love by the way) you have to get them out of your head, by putting their story on paper!! So very glad you’ve done that :)”


So, my work prepped and ready, I have to make a slight diversion before I start…

I received notice of my first Kindle royalty payment and as exciting as it is – I won’t be quitting my day job anytime soon! ha ha! ¬†REALITY CHECK – my friend “Nurse Pink” challenged me to figure out my “pay” based on what I put into Sweet Surrender and the pay back (so far). I put it on paper – it’s about $2.23/per hour. Not bad, but…. you won’t find me sitting on the deck at my beach house with a Mai Tai typing, while the sun sets over the Caribbean, with my golden retriever at my feet as the staff prepares our meals any time soon! ha ha!

In the next week or so I’ll be exploring NOOK¬†availability with SS. I’ll post here, FB and Twitter when I figure it out.

OK peeps, I gotta get busy!

Thank you, again, for sharing this AMAZING JOURNEY with me! I hope you’re ready for the next leg of our travels together ‘cuz it’s coming SOONER than later (and since I started R&R in 2003 I don’t think I’ll figure out my hourly rate on that one anytime soon! ha ha ha!)

I have to share this before I go, because it makes me smile! It’s my background on my phone to keep ME in check! Thanks MGN!

Hi ho… hi ho… it’s off to write I go!

Love, Barbara
